Skin Spa’s MicroLaserPeel is a partial to full epidermal laser peel and is done in the spa with a topical anesthetic. It ablates the outermost layers of the skin with a depth between 10 and 50 microns based on the level of correction needed. This treatment is usually repeated two to four times, spaced six to eight weeks apart to achieve the desired result. Downtime is three to four days; patients may look sunburned immediately following the treatment, but the redness will continue to dissipate.
